Speaking of Opening Gates

Guillermo might be back on At the Mountains of Madness, this time with James Cameron producing.

Geekgasm doesn't begin to describe the level of anticipation that would accompany such a project. del Toro "gets" Lovecraft; combining his storytelling gifts with Cameron-esque mountainous Antarctic visuals could not only be a match made in heavenhell, it could also be potent enough at the box office to 'mainstream' Lovecraft in a way that's never been done before.

Which, y'know, might not be such a great thing in the long run (Stephen Sommers' Call of Cthulhu, anyone?) but I'm willing to risk it.
